Happy Friday from California! I’m headed back to campus this afternoon for a fun-filled weekend but it is a quick trip and I’ll be back to New York on Monday. I hope you have a wonderful weekend & I’ll see you back here next week! xx
WHAT I DID THIS WEEK:
- I donated to the Red Cross to help Napa & Sonoma. My heart is broken for this amazingly beautiful place where I have made so many happy memories over the past 12+ years. If you can afford to give to these people + businesses who have lost everything, every little bit counts. Here are additional ways to help.
- I held a couple meetings with people interested in / just starting the self employment life. It is a way I can give back as so many were so open + helpful to me when I began exploring it. (In case you’re interested, see this post I wrote last year, too!)
- I swapped over my closet sending sandals and dresses to storage and becoming reunited with my winter coats, boots and more. (I use Makespace to store through the year. It is a lifesaver!)
- I got together with friends met on my trip to Sicily last month. I’m overdue for sharing my posts on that but they’ll be coming soon!
READ + LOOK + LOVE:
- Did you know something called “slow fashion” exists?
- I’m bookmarking several of Mackenzie’s book recommendations.
- Ashley looks too cute in these photos.
- Love Merritt’s look here. (Those boots!)
- Speaking of boots, Blair makes me want these.
- So proud of Briony for making this brave decision.
- 9 places to visit this winter.
- Great field jacket recommendations can be found right this way.

Thank you SO much, Anne! So glad you found wit & whimsy and no doubt you’ll roc that blazer 🙂 xx
Oh Meghan, thank you so much for the kind words and lovely mention. Not sure if I’m brave or crazy, so I’m bookmarking your ‘self-employed’ post for all the tips I can get!
Have a lovely week!
